Marble Falls woman barks for parks



by Alexandria Randolph

A Marble Falls woman is campaigning for the creation of a city dog park.

Megan Klaeger, a former New Yorker, began her mission to establish a city dog park three weeks ago after moving back to Texas from the Big Apple in May.

“I lived in New York for six years and had a dog, and we would go to the dog park all the time,” Klaeger said. “When I moved back here, I adopted a dog from a local shelter. She has a ton of energy.”

Klaeger said that she would like to be able to take her new pup, Jo, to a local dog hangout to make new four-legged and two-legged friends, but there are none in Marble Falls. She decided to try to establish one.

“We’ve gotten a lot of support,” Klaeger said.

Klaeger said dog park supporters may sign the petition for Jo’s Dog Park at Pet Supply Plus or by emailing to join the mailing list.

More information is also available by visiting the group’s Facebook page at Park.
